Race is arguably the most serious problem in American history and culture. Our history books have done a poor job of relating this problem. This course examines black and white relations from early slavery, which led to the Civil War, the Jim Crow era and the Civil Rights struggle of the mid-20th century. Lerone Bennett's "Before The Mayflower" is a highly recommended reading. Kenneth W. Phifer is a retired Unitarian Universalist Minister.
